I feel the same way about expensive aluminum heads...they are not worth the extra 10-15 HP over properly ported 351w heads with oversize valves on a stret engine that will rarely if ever see more than 6500 rpm...just my opinion, but I plan to make MightyMach a believer when he gets back from spring semester.On 2004-05-09 12:16, kid vishus wrote:
I have NEVER lost a solid flat tappet cam during break in.
But I have destroyed a lot of good parts when the pin has sheared in the front of a solid roller cam. It's not worth destroying a thousand dollars worth of parts for 5 hp in my opinion.
